“All of us at Regional Hospice feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to bring this amazing Center to reality,” said Roy. “We know it will be a place where patients and their families will feel comfort, care and healing at the end of life. It’s a privilege to be able to provide this.” said Cynthia E. Roy, MS, LCSW, CHA, President & CEO of Regional Hospice.

A most basic issue for end-of-life care is where your needs will best be met. If home is not the best option, what would make you and your loved ones feel most cared for and comfortable?

The Center for Comfort Care and Healing has 12 private suites, a multitude of amenities, and accommodates families to stay overnight. The Center provides patients and their families options for the highest quality care away from home, while supporting their personal needs and respecting their individuality.

The Center’s hospice and palliative-care trained medical directors, physicians and APRNs are available 24/7. In addition to nursing and palliative care, the team provides emotional, spiritual and volunteer support, as well as massage, Reiki, music and a Pet Partner Program.

Some families find comfort and serenity in their private suite with their door closed. Others make every inch of our beautiful Center their home.

Most families need both — precious privacy for quiet times of sharing and sunny open spaces to welcome family and friends, engage with our staff and volunteers, celebrate a birthday, eat a favorite meal or relax in our garden.

Chef Aaron Swart and his kitchen staff often become beloved members of a family because his window is always open for requests, and food is a universal language that nurtures warmth and friendship.

“From the years I have worked in hospice care, I know that the responsibility for a loved one’s care can be emotionally and physically draining. Sometimes patients would rather be in a setting where loved ones can instead focus on spending quality time together,” explained Deborah Ryan MSW, LCSW, ACHP-SW, Chief Clinical Officer of Regional Hospice
